Abstract: The sequences of NADH dehydrogenase subunit 5 gene, chloroplast rbcL gene, and tRNA-Leu (trnL) gene, which were downloaded from Genbank, were taken as indices. The phylogenetic relationships in the genus level of the family Orthotrichaceae were analyzed by using the program of Clustalx and Winclada based on the ingroup including 33 species belonging to 21 genera of the family and the outgroup including 19 species of Ptycomitriaceae,Hedwigiaceae,Erpodiaceae,Pterobryaceae, Neckeriaceae, Meteoriaceae, Symphyodontaceae,Hookeriaceae,Hypnaceae and Poltrichaceae.Three consensus trees were made and indicated:(1) The family Orthotrichoideae is clearly a monophly;(2) It supports that the Orthotrichoideae could be categorized into two subfamilies:Orthotrichoideae and Macromitrioideae; (3)Bryomaltaea is better to be placed within the subfamily Macromitrioideae.
